    I'm thinking about placing an order with www.toywiz.com, but I have not purchased from them before. Has anyone ordered from this site, and are there any shopping experiences you'd care to share?

    I heard they were pretty good. How good is their shipping to Canada? (Their Hasbro Reissues look soooo good. Plus, they're at the same price BBTS is asking, only TW has Skywarp)

    If you absolutely cant find it anywhere else. get it at toywiz. but usually 9 times out of 10. you can find whatever your looking for at other places.

    Yeah, only as a last resort. Way overpriced. I've TRIED to order 2 different items only to have the orders cancelled due to item not being in stock. You can sign up for their newsletter and get a 5% off code about once a month, but it's still not worth it.

    I pre-ordered an Alternators Rumble Honda Civic from them, several months in advance of the release date. I pre-paid the full price upfront. Release date came and went. Several weeks later, I had gotten fed up, ordered Rumble from ActionHQ, received him from said store, and finally cancelled my order with Toywiz. They were pretty efficient and friendly about cancelling my order and refunding my money at least.

    Stay away from them. Use them as a very last last last resort only. Pricey, over-rated and not that good.

    Not a fan. Poor communication, slow shipping, and slightly higher prices, at least in my experience. I gave 'em a coupla tries, then gave up on 'em.

    The items I'm looking for are the Galaxy Force EZ figures, which are decently priced on the site. Have no one here had a good experience with Toywiz? From what I'm reading here, save one entry, it just seems like they have higher prices, but ultimately reliable. Is this a correct assessment?

    Damn. Oh well, it would've been a bitch to order from the States anyway.

    Does anyone else know of a good online store that has the Hasbro Reissue Skywarp?

    Prices of their items notwithstanding, are they reliable? Do they deliver their goods in a reasonable amount of time?
